Document shows ties among RCAF, government and private sector

The table below shows the contents of a document, signed by Prime Minister Hun Sen on February 22 and obtained by the Post, listing elements of the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces (RCAF) that are to be grouped with government offices and private companies or individuals. Through the partnership, the listed companies and individuals are to provide charitable support to their designated military outfits.

Many companies and representatives from the private sector who are listed, however, have not yet confirmed their participation in the programme. Government officials say the arrangement will simply formalise long-standing donations from the private sector, providing soldiers with food, shelter and other necessities. Some observers warn, however, that the partnerships could lead to the military is being co-opted by private interests.
